KUCHING: A delegation from the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sarawak (ACCCIS) called on Sarawak Transport Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin on Wednesday (Jan 20).

The visit was to get acquainted with the latest development from the Sarawak government relating to public transportation.

One of it being the state’s intention to unveil and develop the Automated Rapid Transit (ART) system to tackle traffic congestion.

Acccis also brought up several issues in the 90-minute dialogue, including whether to uphold the cabotage policy in the state, and a request for the ministry to appoint a representative from Acccis to sit on the Sarawak Public Transportation Committee.

The representative would act as a channel for Acccis to contribute its input and views for the betterment of public transportation in Sarawak.
